Social Psychology

The film of Jose Padilha tells to a marcante episode occurrence in 12 of June of 2000 in the city of Rio De Janeiro. One is about the kidnapping of a bus of line 174, that he was withheld in the quarter Botanical Garden for approximately five hours. The author of the scene was Sandro of the Birth, a young black, edentate, survivor of the slaughter of the Candelria, that kept eleven hostages under the aiming of its gun. Throughout the scenes, we come across ourselves with our reality, which is portraied in clear way, without maquiagens, retouchings. this shocks. We hear stories of professionals of the policy, of social assistant, familiar and friends of Sandro, what it could provide to the viewers a more complex vision of what occurred in that one 12 of June.

Analyzing the questions brought for the film, several can be subject of quarrel for Social Psychology, such as the problems faced for the Brazilian policy, and the conditions of the prisons as well as its consequences for the individual that is imprisoned, amongst others. However, it is clamorous that frightens eleven hostages all loses the existing context for backwards of this ‘ ‘ seqestro’ ‘ , which is of basic importance to arrive itself at the root of the problem. In the case in question, Sandro was a favelada child, with unknown father, who attended the cruel death of its mother (he died esfaqueada), going, after this, to stop in the streets of Rio De Janeiro, having been victim of the slaughter of the Candelria and passed some times for the policy. It is treated, therefore, of a person without familiar, pertaining to school references, without life expectancies. The learnings are solely the ones that occur in the streets: use of drugs, robbery, etc. In this manner, for Sandro, and as much other children who live in the same conditions, the life if summarizes to the street, a esquina, the present moment, since the future is something uncertain.
